COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

pilsnerrogge (2454) - FinspŚng, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2010
Bottle:
Pours a muddy dark brownish amber with a large head. Aroma is shampoo, hops and some liquorice. Thick mouth feel. Flavour resin, pine and some toffee. As expected this is really bitter, but in a pleasant way.

deyholla (6490) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Bottle shared by someone I cannot remember at the 2010 Summer Solstice. Poured a cloudy yellow amber with an off-white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma had strong pine as well as hay and grass on the nose. Flavor was very hoppy, but I thought the texture helped bring that out. For a beer called 1000 IBU, I would expect more extreme hoppiness and pine.

Daddy? Whatís that coming out of Kittyís ears? .. nice presentation, great foam, cool label .. . smell is of fresh pine, green, and sappy aspirin .. . decent malt showing to go with the bitterness.. . for so many ibuís, more balanced than youíd think .. . a nice experience but not again for the price.. . Why thatís uh... raspberry jam!

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Bottle shared by Butters. Pours a cloudy amber with a dissipating off white head. Medium bodied with soft to medium carbonation, and an earthy mouthfeel. Aroma is floral and citrusy. Flavor of pale caramelly malts standing behind a very green, leafy bitterness that leaves resiny feel on the palate. More intense with texture than bitterness, since we all know there is a cap on perceived bitterness.. Interesting experiment, gimmick, or whatever you want to call it.

Murky apple cider color with a tint of a cherry light brown. Slight pop with the cork and no head buildup. Much more fruit pronounced than expected on the nose. Some prune, popcorn, orange blossom, pine needles, and dare I say a gallon size of hop pellets. Holy bananas! That is like a hop tea bag teamed with an imperial ipa all coached by one bitter Bill Bellicheck. Yesísir! Thereís even a sour component that is so interesting with the bone dry finish on the palate. Will that finish ever end? Thereís so much depth and attention to detail with all ingredients. By no means is this straight hop juice. Thereís the malt shining through, the aromas prancing on fruit tones, and an everlasting finish that just seems to never stop. This is truly incredible!

dEnk (3682) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2010 Murky brownish orange, huge dense creamy light brown head. Aroma has loads of fruity hops, orange, grapefruit, some sweaty cheesy earthy hops. Flavour is bitter, but not as bitter as expected, itís much more subtle with grapefruit, orange, faint citrus and some blue cheese. More proper beer then gimmick, which is nice. I definitly have had more bitter beers with supposedly lower ibu ratings.

Vaiz (3266) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2010
Bottle. Clear deep orange pour, very thick foamy rocky head that leaves huge lacing. Aroma is definitely hoppy, but with hints of black tea, grass, resin and some earth. Flavor is a lot more subtle than expected. Loads of hops, but no all-overpowering bitter bomb. Quite drinkable and even a very nice brew.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Bottle. Pouring quite cloudy, the body sports a dark and dusky, rusty orange-amber hue. A small, fleeting head of tan tinted foam leaves thin, smooth rings of lacing behind. The nose is obviously massively hopped, showing tons of orange peel, grapefruit, pine, and grass. Itís quite dank, almost a little musty at times in its big hop aromatics. Still, thereís a massive amount of toffee and caramel malt going on, along with some sweet fruit notes that remind of apricot or nectarine. Flavors are similarly structured, showing oily citrus, dank grass, and resinous pine bitterness amidst a staunch layer of toasted toffee, sweet caramel, and fruity malts. While substantial in body, the palate is overly burdened with sugar. When combined with the soft carbonation, itís a bit too syrupy feeling, not to mention warm. Hoppy bitterness lingers on the tongue well after the swallow. Itís an interesting brew, but itís nothing ground breaking or even all that impressive.

meerbier (1468) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle@Home. The whole idea is insane of course. However Iíve had worse hop beers, more bitter, more grassy but also one dimensional. And this one isnít. Itís actually quite pleasant and soft.

JorisPPattyn (7796) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2010
Fully hazy brown-amber beer with orange highlights; thick-set amberish head, extremely stable. Cakey nose, waffles syrup; C-hops, but much less than expected. The flavour is really bitter, but only gets astringent after swallowing. Bitter syrup, bitter gourd (=bitter melon), nearly kinine-like, metallic, but strangely enough not too bitter. Meat gravy flavour, somewhere retronasal. To explore extremes - good points for this. But the human senses know their own points of collapse, and this oneís beyond that. Beyond the bitterness, thereís pretty little room for anything else.
